They celebrate carnival around the world, Venice has there famous carnival where everyone dresses up, it is celebrated here with dancing, fireworks and parades. It is a mixture of our Halloween and Fourth of July and festivities last for 5 days. I am dancing here with some of my new aunties, music was playing in the square just below our house. Free wine was passed around and 3 different groups came by to liven up the festivities with their costumes and dances. One night we went to the Byzantine church for more folk dancing , this is the 900 year old church we would like to be married at with the Meteora rock behind.
